History Britain in the late twentieth century had quite a cavalier attitude to preserving history, the attitude being: 'When there is some much of it about, what's the point in saving anything new unless it's really extra-ordinary?' As extra-ordinary as the remains of The Rose Theatre I would have thought. Well no -- we'll build an office block on top of it. Times change, and now there is a plan for a proper excavation, thank the gods.
